It would seem that information about sunscreen, the rules of skin protection from the sun is more than enough. However, many girls have questions about how to preserve the youth of the skin and avoid pigmentation and sunburn in the heat.
Remember that type A UV, which makes up 95% of all ultraviolet rays, goes unnoticed and penetrates through clouds, car glass or the apartment into the deep layers of the dermis, activates the formation of free radicals and triggers photoaging. So even if you plan to spend the whole day at your desk at home, do not forget about the cream with SPF. It can be combined with vitamin C serum for excellent antioxidant protection. For example, ix Clinical’s Genexc serum contains 20% ascorbic acid, as well as cockatoo plum extract and a natural skin care disaccharide.
When the right tool is already in your bag, consider a few more points. Apply it 20-30 minutes before going out, lubricate the body and face every 2-3 hours on the beach, do not leave the cream in the sun. And, of course, keep in mind the best hours for a safe tan – before 10 am or after 4 pm. When applying the product, do not forget about the line of hair growth, ears, neck and upper lip.
By the way, SPF 100 sunscreen is essentially no more effective than SPF 50 sunscreen. In fact, SPF 50 sunscreen blocks 98% of ultraviolet radiation, while SPF 30 sunscreen blocks almost 97%.
What should you focus on when choosing a cream with SPF?
First of all, you need to pay attention to the labeling on the package. It is very important to have all the appropriate markings that indicate both protection against UVB and UVA rays. These labels from different manufacturers, according to the requirements of their countries, will also be different, but should always be on the package.
It is because of the labeling that I like Korean brands so much. They have a very convenient marking RA ++++. This means not only protection against UVA rays, but also the quality of this protection. Where the number “++++” indicates the degree of protection. Namely, from UVA-rays we get photoaging of our skin. Maximum PA ++++ mark (4 pluses).
Also, when using sunscreen, keep in mind not only yourself, but also the protection of coral. There are sun protection components that destroy corals when they get into the water. Therefore, in some brands you can find the label “coral protection”
Also, of course, it is important to pay attention to the composition. If it is a proven European or American manufacturer and they have the appropriate markings, the composition should also be good. If it is possible to understand the composition, it would be good to find physical and chemical filters there.
If you have a good cream, it should contain some physical filters. They work as a veil or umbrella that reflects harmful rays from the skin. If this umbrella is not intact, the tool is applied unevenly or too thinly, the whole campaign will fail. Here it is extremely important that it is really enough.
What is the easiest way to find out if I have enough sunscreen?
First, 100 ml is your cost of the drug for 6 months. If it is less (I have, for example, more) – it is a signal that you are doing something wrong. Plus there are many life hacks on the Internet for easy dosing. For example, to apply a thick layer of means on two fingers – this will be your expense at once. I practice applying in several layers – I apply one layer to make me comfortable, everything is absorbed evenly, then the next, thin.
If I use a foundation with SPF 30 or 50, can I stop using sunscreen?
Well, in fact, it’s not just tonal, but protection with tone. Therefore, you can refuse sunscreen. By the way, I recommend doing it to those who like to apply their tonal without protection on top of the sunscreen. If we cover the physical filters with a certain tone, they will not work either, so it is advisable if you want to use a tonal in sunny weather, immediately take a tonal or BB cream with SPF in its composition.
How much sunscreen do you need to apply to make it work?
1.5 ml approximately. I also recommend doing this in 2 steps so as not to calculate and measure exactly every time. First, apply one large pea on the face, wait until the cream is absorbed by the skin, and apply the second. If there is something extra on the face – you will feel discomfort, so it is better to apply a comfortable layer twice and wait for it to absorb.
And, if possible, be sure to carry sunscreen in your bag. It is very convenient to renew the protection during the day.
